Thank you and Farewell: As of March 2018, the nonprofit organization Lilypad Homes is no longer in operation. We had the great pleasure of serving Marin, Sonoma, and Napa Counties, but we were unable to secure funding to continue our nonprofit work. In our three years, we helped create a more friendly permitting environment for the development of accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and junior accessory dwelling units (JADUs). Working with local governments and nonprofits, we provided educational presentations to help homeowners recognize the opportunity to build these units. Our work was inspired by a desire to create safe, secure, and affordable housing for individuals and families across all income levels.
We thank the community for the support and encouragement we received over the years!
ADU Resources: For more information, we recommend contacting your local planning department since cities are now actively encouraging the development of ADUs. There is an excellent ADU guide for homeowners produced by San Mateo County that is available at secondunitcentersmc.org.
The founders of the nonprofit Lilypad Homes have formed an ADU consulting firm providing services to Marin and Sonoma Counties. Visit LilypadHomes.com for more info.
